Email 4853, Keith Briffa, Nov 2006: "dropped the inference of direct, positive association with temperature, because we added in sites that Mike in particular had used because of their inverse sensitivity - ie they were really more precipitation sensitive"

..Tim has just pointed out to me that the caption to the current TS-20 contains the words "locations of temperature sensitive proxy records..". In the revision of the Figure ( showing the 3 maps ) as presented in the Chapter , we refer to sites " used to reconstruct temperature" and dropped the inference of direct, positive association with temperature, because we added in sites that Mike in particular had used because of their inverse sensitivity - ie they were really more precipitation sensitive . It would be better to amend the TSU caption to show the latter wording to account for this also. cheers Keith
